When planning my pregnancy I became incredibly conscious of the chemicals and toxins in skincare. It got me thinking, if these products aren’t safe for a developing baby, then I don’t want them absorbing into my body- pregnant or not. So began my quest to find natural products THAT ACTUALLY WORK. I mean, when you’re in your 30’s it’s not just about “no toxins” and going natural, you want to see and feel that a product is effective.
One of my favourite and most versatile natural products is Jojoba Oil. I first began using it as an eye make up remover, but it didn’t take me long to realize that not only did it remove my makeup without stripping the skin, it was actually more effective in rejuvenating the area than any specific eye cream I had used. These days I use it for my hair, cuticles and as a nighttime moisturizer, but its limitations don’t stop there. The powerful healing properties of Jojoba make it perfect for the whole family as it can soothe everything from insect bites and sunburn to dermatitis and cold sores.
I use The Jojoba Company’s Jojoba Oil. It’s actually a liquid wax, not an oil, and is the only known plant source of wax esters that can literally put back what age takes away. It’s the only product that can mimic the skin’s natural oils so it plumps, hydrates and nourishes.
Jojoba Oil is antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and hypoallergenic.It really is my go-to, multi-purpose skin product and can be used on all skin types.
